  1. The Big Sky

Lyrics

The Big Sky 3-20-2020
He sailed out of Boston
Down to Chesapeake Bay
Rolled out of Richmond
After a couple of days
Ended up in Texas
Joined a cattle drive
Alone on the range
He planned to spend the rest of his life.

He left Boston with no reason to stay
After the angels came and took his love away.

Old man Murphy
Pulled a shift in the mine
Wasn’t supposed to be there
It wasn’t his time
He left a pretty widow
In the house by Flathead Lake
Along come that cowboy
The Angels showing him the way.

She gave him a reason to stay
Up in the Big Sky country they’d start again.

Up in the Big Sky
Where Angels fly
Your home to stay
Land of the Big Sky
Dry your eyes
You’ll find a way.

The cowboy started out
On the Emerald Isle
Ended up in Boston
Wore a badge for a while
Wandered with the doggies
In his time out on the range
Till he found the Big Sky country
Where he’d live out his days.

Angels would give and take along the way
The Big Sky country is their Heaven today.

Up in the Big Sky
Where Angels fly
Your home to stay
Land of the Big Sky
Dry your eyes
You’ll find a way.
